Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has moved quickly to reinforce his midfield by agreeing a £8million deal to sign AZ Almaar midfielder Rasmus Elm.
The Sweden international has long been linked with a move to England and the Sun has reported that Dalglish recently flew to Holland in order to watch the player one more time.
However, when he arrived at the club he found out that Elm would be missing the game as his wife had gone in to labour and he would not be in action against Feyenoord.
Despite not being able to take one last look, Dalglish and his team have now made the necessary arrangements with the Dutch club and the 24-year-old should be a Liverpool player next season.
The Sun believes that Elm has agreed personal terms with the FA Cup finalists and that he will sign a five-year deal with wages of around £40,000-a-week.
Liverpool has moved quickly to complete a deal for the midfielder as Dalglish looks to strengthen his squad after a disappointing season in the league.
